I took my Lady out shooting prairiedogs for the first time today at the warm up shoot for the Soap Creek Prairie Dog Association annual gathering. She was using 40 grain V-Max/Varget loads in a CZ American Varmint .204 Ruger that I set up especially for her. I was very proud of her. Shooting over a camera tripod she scored eight hits of ten shots a distances from 210 to 270 yards -in a shifting cross wind, no less- with no coaching. She had taken the ballistic table print-out I'd made and studied it this past week, much to the woe of those beer-bottle sized rodents. It was a small town covered with tall grasses and shots were few and far between but she accounted for herself well. She certainly earned the T Shirt from this years meet and her membership to the Association.
Unfortunately, she really likes that CZ which is too bad: It's going to be set back and rechambered to 20 Tactical next week. I hate that f-ing short-necked .204! ~Muir
